Principal JoAnn Giesler retires

It is with great sadness that St. Boniface School will be saying “goodbye” to their beloved principal, JoAnn Giesler.  Although she had only been an St. Boniface for 3 years she fit right in discovering she had several connections to the community. She had been in the teaching profession for 36 years.

Previously she had been a vice – principal at St. Matthews and St. Mother Teresa, and principal at Monsignor Haller.  JoAnn is the first principal at St. Boniface School to have been a previous principal all former principal’s had been vice-principal’s.

She began her teaching career at Sacred Heart School in Ladner, B.C.  for the Roman Catholic School Board of the Archdiocese of Vancouver as a grade 5 teacher.

All the 135 students had decorated a rock and placed them on the floor in gym in the shape of a heart. This was presented at the Friday morning assembly on June 30th.  Julie Kobe chair of the St. Boniface School Council also presented her with a gift on behalf of the school.
